u.s.- israeli relations that were badly strained and president obama's first term? >> yeah, john, and you're right, it's an israeli-u.s. reset, and i think it was a great success. i think the president's speech was outstanding to the young israelis. i think it was full of realism and idealism. what he has done, he has walked away from the idea that israel has to stop building settlements, and as a reality there's not going to be any palestinian state as long as you have the president meeting with netanyahu, lieberman, and those folks in power, but i do think there's been a reset in relations with israel. but john with the whole middle east, look at muslim brotherhood in egypt, hamas, gaza, the jordanian king is in trouble, syria is about to collapse in anarchy. you've got hezbollah in lebanon. i think that whole area is moving the other direction. if i were the president of the united states, i believe what he wants to do and ought to do is get out of dodge. >> eleanor. >> i can't remember a time in my lifetime when there was a peaceful status quo in the middle east. it's always

giant engine. get rid of the whackos and john mccain cats them and you lose another engine. all the libertarians who just want government out of their face and out of their lives and you kell another engine. try to do what ryan priebus is doing right now and you will see the problem, tristeering the car with your engine dead. tristeering the political party once you kill the motor. you set out to kill the big motors of the republican party itself. for progressives the amazing thing here is people on the left, center left, and a big share of the center right now are together. they know why the republican established wants to free itself from the issues, they are relieved, thrilled really, it not them trying to hold together a motley crew. senior t strategist for rick santorum's political campaign. let me go -- i want to start with the basic question of a political party. this week's republican autopsy report it's being called urged the party to be more inclusive of gay people, women, minorities, did not go unnoticed by the social conservative wing of the party. the report makes l

to be quiet. that's a quote by the white house. that's what former u.n. ambassador john bolton is talking about this morning. >> i think the entire way the administration has handled the benghazi affair has been abnormal. they were not made available to congress or others finding out what happened dha. part of the administration's problem here is that many people think they engaged in a cover up. they made up the story about the demonstration because they didn't want to reveal terrorist groups were present in and around benghazi. i think the way to get to the bottom of it is to allow these people to talk to members of congress to tell them what happened to them on the day of the attack and if they feel indim dated if they are being withheld from congress that is only going to continue. the question in other people's minds, is this a cover up, is it not. >> ranking member of the community a democrat is also talking saying everything is being done to find out the truth. >>> right now there's an investigation going on. what happened in benghazi is a terrible situation when americans loss the
." for the latest, let's go to nbc's kristen welker live for us at the white house. senators lindsey graham and john mccain have just issued a statement warning that if the use of chemical weapons is verified, then the united states must take immediate action. i have to ask you, kristen, how is the white house responding to these disturbing reports out of syria? >> reporter: well, they are quite concerned about the reports out of syria, martin, and i have to tell you, there are still a lot of question marks. the white house making the point that they are looking into the allegations that chemical weapons were used in syria. as you pointed out, the government is pointing fingers at the rebel forces. the rebel forces are pointing fingers at the government. you notice the language that jay carney used today was quite different in terms of referring to the rebel forces. saying at this point in time there is no credible evidence to suggest that they used chemical weapons. they are taking these reports very seriously, though, and trying to determine if this was, in fact, the case. now, of course, presiden
colleague, karen tumelty and john morris. my mentor. harry reid focusing on the positive in some way said that this universal background checks will in the bill. what he didn't say is that high capacity magazines, banning those, and the assault weapons ban will not be, they'll be offered as amendments, what does this say about how much the political climate, if at all has changed as it ties to guns, karen, since what happened in newtown, connecticut late last year. >> well harry reid says he's basically counting the votes here. there are not the 60 votes it would take to overcome a filibuster on the tougher measures, i think also that he is looking at the fact that he has some democratic seats up for re-election in 2014. and in 2014. and in some states that it's going to be very difficult to hold. places like west virginia and arkansas. and so he's, he's really not quite ready. i think to sort of put his members on the line for this. so he will allow these to be offered as amendments from the floor. but there are also likely to be some amendments from the other side. it was interesting, t
chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is standing by, and john king are joining us from amman, jordan, where the president wrapped up his trip. he has done well in jordan, now the hard work begins. where do we go from here? >> reporter: the white house feels he accomplished what they set out as his primary goal, which was to reconnect with the israeli people and convince them that he understands where they're coming from on the primary security issues. the big question as you point out, can this lead to real accomplishments, that would be on the peace front with palestinians, simply too many questions that remain outstanding when it comes to settlements and exchange of prisoners, other major issues that the arab world and palestinians are unsatisfied with. and syria, iran, these are still just two looming trouble spots that are unaddressed at this point, but what we do know, the president and netanyahu prime minister of israel ended the note on a renewed -- >> reporter: the frost melted, major concession from netanyahu, they now have a real partnership, ability to work togethe
presidential campaign i worked for john kerry and dick gephardt two great progressives and being for civil unions in that campaign was considered the leading edge. >> it was a big deal then. >> big deal. in 2016 every democrat running for president will be for marriage equality. you know, frankly, i think the republicans as we saw with rob portman last week and the report they put out yesterday are starting to come our way, too. it's only a matter of time. >> that was my question. do you think that, well, if any democrat or for that matter any republican can get through 2016 that the obvious pickle is for republicans who are trying to get through the primaries? >> i think it'll be tough for a republican but if i look at "the washington post"/abc poll yesterday, 81% of people under the age of 30 -- 81% are for marriage equality. if they're not going to be for it in 2016 they're going to be for it in 2020 or 2024. >> vice president biden, maryland's governor, martin o'malley, of course new york's governor andrew cuomo, all of them for same sex marriage. do you think we'll see a sort of a win
went around st. peter's square in an open pope mobile. you will remember that back in 1981, john pawl ii fell victim to an assassination attempt -- john paul ii fell victim to an assassination attempt. the vehicle was filled with plexiglass to protect the pope. the pope stopped to kiss some babies and he even got out and went to comfort a sick one. he talked about st. joseph in his homily and st. josephs need to protect the poor, the downtrodden and the fragile. it was a representation of the thing he was talking about. he also had another part of his mess arm for the assembled dignitaries. there were 130 around the world, including 30 heads of state who were here, and a dozen or so heads of government as well as officials from various religions around the world. he said authentic power is service. that must have been one of the message that he wanted to get across because he later tweeted that same line. >> and for all of the change that's happening, there's gonna be a lot of similarities because there's very little chance of any change as far as leaning toward liberal stances, roles
. in our next hour ambassador john bolton and ambassador nick burns will join us on the developing crisis in the country that means a lot for us and our relations in this region of the world. tens of thousands reported a suspicious flash of light spotted streaking across the night sky from florida to massachusetts. and so, what was it? trace gallagher, do you know? >> reporter: yeah, i know. i'm not going to tell you. no, it was actually a meteor, it was like this wide. now, remember, scientists say most of us will go our entire life without seeing a meteor. it seems like everyone saw this one, right? at eight o'clock friday night streaked across the eastern sky. by ten o'clock the american meteor society, nasa, several weather channels had gotten thousands of calls from nine different states, including canada, and as far inland asoo reporting this as a very bright star with a long green tail. meteors are normally the size of small pebbles. one the size of a softball can kind of light up like the full moon. this one, they believe, was a little more than a yard wide, which is why it lit up

of the show why you're awake. john tower with the answers. >> we have biff. our very own punxsutawney bill has accurate weather predictions every morning and we are fine with it. >> jeremy asks what does groundhog taste like? i think is pushing it a little bit too far. great show, everyone. "morning joe" starts right now. ♪ >> given the ties between our countries, i believe your future is bound to ours. no, no. this is part of the lively debate that we talked about. this is for a. i have to say we actually arranged for that because it made me feel at home. you know, i wouldn't feel comfortable if i didn't have at least one heckler. >> there you go. good morning. it is friday as you take a live look at times square in new york city. welcome to "morning joe." it's march 22nd, by the way, with us on the set we have msnbc contributor mike barnicle. hello, mike. senior political editor and white house correspondent for the huffington post, sam stein is here. and senior national correspondent for bloomberg business week josh green. hi, guys. how are you? >> good to be here. >> we start with the ne
not really passed ever. john boehner was happy because what they did also today was approve by 318-109 a federal spending bill to keep the government funded through september 30, which averts a march 27 shutdown of the government. here is the speaker of the house excited by the vote. >> it is a good day for the american people. every family in america must balance their budget. today, us republicans passed our bold plan to balance the budget over the next 10 years. this budget does more than just balance. it helps improve people's lives and addresses the things i think they most care about fixing the tax code lowering rates means more jobs and higher wages for the american people. michael: and when we need to dig into something like the ryan budget, something like the government showdown, we go to someday who knows a lot better than we do chris moody. thanks for being on "the young turks" today. tell us what happened today. it's not just the ryan budget. wasn't the affordable care act in play today, as well. >> it was. the ryan budget is similar to ones they've passed before. this
minister netanyahu as well as secretary of state john kerry. he laid a wreath in the hall of remembrance then offered these thoughts. >> this accounting of horror is in the end a source of hope. for here we learn that we are never powerless. in our lives we always have choices. to seccumb to our worst instincts or to summon the better angels of our nature. >> the president made a quick trip to bethlehem to visit the church of the nativity with palestinian president mahmoud abbas and is now preparing to head to ahman, jordan. nbc's chuck todd traveled ahead of the president and joins me live now from there in ahman. chuck, i can only imagine the university of miami cheerleaders brought a smile to your face in amman, jordan. >> good morning. that was a great surprise. we're inside by the way. if you look behind me you can see it's a little dusty out there. there's been heavy winds almost like a sandstorm out here. it's actually something that prevented the president from choppering to bethlehem. instead he had to motorcade there. it's that type of windy day here. i say that because we coul
of new mexico or john kas governor snyder, all these people may be able to emphasize their experience but also marco rubio, you mentioned. rand paul is going may be a candidate. i think at some point for the top spot but the second part, senator from new hampshire and governor chris christie, if he gets re-elected is going to be a player if he wants to be a player. >> greta: do you see a bigger role for the people that identify themselves as tea party candidates or do you think that freshly in light of the recent rnc report certain things like suggesting perhaps fewer debates which may be more difficult for less well known candidate. what do you see looking into the future? >> a dozen debates is going to be adequate for anybody to get known. 22 hurt the republican party. chairman priebus is right. we ought to limit the number of debates. it's what the democrats did to minimize the damage to them from putting anchors in charge in unscripted events. it really hurt on our side because most of anchors were happy to pick the republicans, not concerned with jobs, economy and deficit and hea
, again, particularly these democratic senators are up for re-election. john boehner has basically said in the house, you know, we're going to sit back and watch and see what comes out of the senate. so it is a very, you know, bad use of a word, but sort of a targeted issue here. you know, i just am not entirely sure that mayor bloomberg's money is going to have the kind of impact in those areas it would have to have. >> i want to bring in congressman charles rangel. always good to have you on the program. good morning. >> good to be back. good morning. >> you're a proponent of many of these new laws. what happened to people in your corner? i mean, things seemed so promising after newtown and now the senate democrats, harry reid said, look, it's just a pragmatic decision, can barely get 40 votes for an assault weapons ban, let alone 60. what happened? >> i'm ashamed to admit it, but it's politics and it's money. the national rifle association has taken this position. there's no reason, there's no foundation, there's no hunter that needs automatic military weapons to enjoy the culture of
to be here again. secretary of state john kerry is in the middle east. he is urging iraq to stop letting iran use its airspace to shuttle weapons and soldiers to the syrian government >> for those of us engaged in the effort to see president assad step down and a see a democratic process take hold with a transitional government government according to the geneva communique, for those of us engaged in that effort, anything that supports president assad is problematic. bill: so iran claims the flights contain humanitarian supplies. conor powell in the middle east bureau in jerusalem. first of all who is behind the car bomb, the car bomb hit on the rebel commander? >> reporter: so often is the case, bill, really tough to get accurate information coming out of syria. but it is not clear if it was the syrian regime that launched this assassination attempt or if it was sort of opposition rebel fact -- faction that may have launched attack on the colonel of the he is reportedly in stable condition in turkey after the attack. he was one of the original founders of the free syrian army. it has been so
success. just ask john kerry. what was the problem for the debates? the number of them or the participants? one more takeaway from the report, if you can't beat them, join them. the report says this. quote, well-funded conservative groups should seek to hire activists to attract democratic incumbents and cameras with -- after learning the hard way what video cameras did to todd aiken, george allen, even many murdoch. republicans want to return the favor, clearly. while republicans try to rehabilitate the party's image they have a more fundamental problem to solve. all the process fixes in the world can't deal with the basic question. who are they? as the gop tries to solve this mini identity crisis, feuds are breaking out all over as people try to move around and box each other out to decide who gets to play this game. those divisions were on full display at this weekend's cpac convention as republicans argued about whether the gop needs to expand i wants appeal or reject moderation and return to conservative principles. and debated what exactly those core principles are. former alaska gov
minority leader mitch mcconnell, john cornyn, and rising star, ted cruz. no "newsweek's" david frum makes sense of it all saying, "the out size influence of hard-line elements in the party base is doing to the gop what supporters of gene mccarthy and george m m mcgovern did to the democratic party in the late 1960s and early 1970s, radicalizing its image and standing in the way of its revitalization." let's bring in heather demos and michael. heather, please help me to understand what is happening here. what does it say to you that folks like mitch mcconnell and john cornyn, both of whom are likely to face primary challenges in 2014, feel the need to sign on to the rand paul budget? >> we've lost our way. we've officially lost our way. i actually curled up with 106-page document today with a warm cup of tea. >> what could be cozier. >> and maybe it's the tenth anniversary of the iraq war, but i closed it and said, this is like a shock and awe attack against the american government, right? you're bringing four departments, decimating them to rubble. a flat tax that would basically bring th

selection. by comparison, only 60% approved of pope benedict's election. let's turn to john allen, senior vatican analyst. what was the message the pope had for congregants today? >> well, carol, the message came in his homily, that is the set of reflections in the bible readings that the priest delivers during mass, which pope francis today said power and, remember, this was in a way about him receiving symbol, the cloth he wears around the shoulder and fisherman's ring, power has to be about service, particularly service to the poorest, weakest and poorest, and you saw that symbolism, when he stopped the open air jeep to kiss some children and went over to a sick man, embrace and caress him. this is about setting a tone, carol. basically the last week has been about pope francis introducing himself to the world and this was the grand finale. the end of the beginning so to speak. most people looking at it would say what a beginning it has been. >> it's been quite touching to watch. john allen, reporting live from the vatican this morning. thank you. >>> in florida, a suicide shocked the

the senate would then have to go over to the house and we're not sure what john boehner would do at this point in time. yesterday he indicated that he doesn't want to expend any new laws. that could trip up all of the reform. >> let me ask you, cynthia, about the politicians and passions about this. they were very hot, 90% for a better set of background checks. in fact, everything comes out with a majority. will it be brought to bear as the senate votes after easter? >> chris, i certainly hope so. i'm so glad that you are advising people to get in contact with their members of congress and members of senate. let me also say that i am so disappointed that harry reid didn't do more to at least keep the ban on high capacity magazines in the main bill. i wanted to see a ban on assault weapons as well but the ban on high-capacity magazines is so critical because those magazines have been used in virtually every major mass shooting that we've seen over the last decade. and they matter. they give the capacity to fire round after round after round without reloading. they give the capacit
national correspondent john king is traveling with the president in amman right now and is joining us now with the latest. it sounds like the president is still a little bit hopeful at least that this can be resolved, iran's nuclear ambitions, peacefully through diplomacy and negotiation. that is the impression i'm getting though he is obviously not ruling out the military option either. >> reporter: that's the delicate challenge for the president. if you just listen to one event like that one today you might think oh, he's playing good cop. then you listen to some of his statements during the trip in israel where he promised the israeli government if necessary if diplomacy fails look me in the eye. i mean it. i will use military force to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon. he also said he wouldn't stand in the way if israel wanted to defend itself. so at some points he is muscular at other points more gentle and reaching out. it is the big national holiday, the biggest holiday of the year in iran right now. when he talks about the great civilization he is trying to reach out to t

's going to take actions. >> well john kerry is going to follow up, the secretary of state, coming back here for din wer prime minister netanyahu. as a former two-term chief white house correspondent, david, you must have been identifying with our own chuck todd and how he tried to sneak in several questions. i wanted to play a little bit more of that wonderful exchange at the news conference last night. >> thank you, mr. president. mr. prime minister. mr. president, i want to follow up a little bit on the peace process. and mr. prime minister, i want to help out my colleague over here and then a question, another question i had for you. is why do you -- >> chuck, how many you got? you see how the young lady from channel 1, she had one question, she was very well behaved, chuck. >> i got one for you. >> these are muted questions. >> i get four questions. >> this is not a kosher question, but don't hog it. >> chuck, mine you're just incorrigible. >> so, so david, of course with the four questions, the centerpiece of the passover seder, there was a seder joke, a kosher joke, it was a bors
apartment in singapore. the fbi is now investigating the case. secretary of state john kerry and attorney general eric hold rer asking questions of the singapore government. singapore police say todd committed suicide. todd's parents say it was murder. now shane todd was found dead in his apartment in june just hours after his last day working for a prestigious government research firm. but did his work make him a target? >> reporter: shane todd, 31 years old, had a phd in electrical engineering and by all accounts a very bright future. he was working for the institute of micro electronics or ime, a prominent singapore research facility. his project involved creating faster, more powerful semiconductors. his parents say that in his last few months he was stressed, even expressing fear for his life. he had told them he didn't feel right about his work. that it might be illegal, even a risk to u.s. national security. with little faith in the singapore police and the fbi unable to help in a foreign country, the todds had little choice but to launch their own investigation. rick todd had pict
for aimings and has a lot of allies, including speaker john boehner who might have to push a controversial immigration bill through his had house. is he going to put two bills on the floor that could anger his base and hurt them in 2014? potentially and hurt his tenure as speaker? that remains to be seen. >> you know what that means, josh, your boss, mayor bloomberg -- do you call him your boss? like -- >> i call him sir. >> is going to have a busy next couple of years. >> well you know, hopefully he's got a bank account. >> something tells me he does. >> to fund it. >> we have to take a break. but the gun reform discussion continues. this weekend on "meet the press." david gregory will talk exclusively with new york city mayor, michael bloomberg and nra ceo wayne lapierre. if that is not must-see television, i do not know what is. this is this sunday on "meet the press." coming up, merriam webster defines the addiction as the compulsive need for and use of a habit-forming substance. so when scientists are literally altering the physical shape of salt, what chance does an addict stand? we
